Avalanche warning for region Romsdal Saturday 13.03.2021

Danger level 2 - Moderate avalanche danger

Published:
Be careful in lee areas with wind deposited snow, typically behind ridges, ribs and in gullies. Especially where the wind deposited slabs are thin or soft, a slab avalanche is easier to trigger here.

Avalanche problems

Wind drifted snow (slab avalanches)

You can easily trigger avalanches on a few steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury a car or destroy a small house (size 3).

Advice

The bulletin is a planning tool and may differ from the actual situation. Always make your own evaluation. To be 100 % avalanche safe, avoid all avalanche terrain.

Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Snøoverflata ber preg av kraftig vind og mykje snøtransport av snøen som kom førre veke. Laurdag vart det transportert mykje snø i heng mot aust og sør, mens det no er pågåande kraftig vind som gjev snøtransport til leområder mot nord og vest.


Vedvarande svake lag frå kuldeperioden i januar er i stor grad nøytralisert opp til ca 1200 moh pga kraftig mildvær. Over denne høgda kan laget framleis vere eit problem nokre stadar.

Kraftig snøvêr og vind dei siste dagane har mange stadar gjeve store skavlar, spesielt mot aust.
